Trends to Follow: Decarbonizing Aviation and Fueling Innovations

Trends to follow: Decarbonizing Aviation

Aviation fuel is now a target of both national and international institutions, most notable are the IATA Sustainable Aviation Fuel Roadmap, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed amendments, Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council proposed Amendments and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) commitment to a Long-Term Aspirational Goal for global aviation to reach Net Zero Carbon emissions by 2050.

There have been few deployed alternate solutions but there are now several real opportunities to achieve Net Zero Carbon (Zero-Carbon Fuels) including: Dimethyl Ether (DME)., Ethanol-to-jet fuel (ETJ)., Methanation, Hydrogen (H2), Ammonia (NH3), Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology and the Electrification of Aviation Fleets.
